Charity Wakefield (born September 1980)[1] is an English actress.



Wakefield was born in Sussex, England in September 1980. At a couple of months old she moved with her mother, Caroline, to L'Ampolla in Catalonia, Spain. They returned to England when Wakefield was four.[1] She has a half-sister, Olivia. Her maternal grandfather was actor James Hayter.[1]

Wakefield went to Bexhill College,[1] and studied acting at the Oxford School of Drama from 2000 to 2003.[2] As well as acting, she plays the violin and has a strong soprano singing voice.[3]


Wakefield made her screen debut in 2004, in (Past Present Future) Imperfect. She starred in a BBC1 production of Rapunzel, in which Rapunzel is a young tennis star,[4] and also appeared in Casualty 1907.[5]

Her theatre credits include Yesterday Was a Weird Day, a production about the 2005 London bombings, Constance in The Three Musketeers at the Bristol Old Vic, and Elaine in The Graduate, at the New Vic. Wakefield's performance as Susan in Baby with the Bathwater at the Old Red Lion Theatre was called "fabulous."[6]

In 2008 she toured in a revival of W. Somerset Maugham's The Circle at the Chichester Festival Theatre, as well as working on the BBC comedy pilot Freddi.[7] She has recently appeared in the Channel 4 drama Any Human Heart.
